Distributing a VB program?
Posted on 2004-09-09
I'm rather new to visual basic, and am experimenting a bit. I am using a few activex controls (like flexgrid and common controls), and one activex from another company as an interface to a DB.
When I compile this program and am ready to make a distribution file, what all do I need to include with the distribution to make it work? Do I need all of the .ocx's? Do I need any special .DLL's aside from the ones that were given to me from the other company for the DB interface? And what will I need to do to "register" the controls to make them useable?
I am either going to use installshield or another install creater utility to build the distribution files
Thanks in advance!
